Summary

Summary

Ross Harney had made his decision. He sat in the middle of all he owned: a splendid Appaloosa gelding, a fine California saddle, a .44 Winchester rifle, and two walnut-stocked Colt .44 pistols. These were his all. It was a life that had left him rich in experience but poor in goods of the world. He had known the hard-fisted reality of cold winters, dry ranges, and the dusty bitterness of cattle drives. He had fought Comanches and rustlers, hunted buffalo and horse thieves. But now he was going to ride for himself, fight for himself.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A strong case can be made that L’Amour was the most popular American writer of the twentieth century…His books embody heroic virtues that seem to matter now more than ever.” Wall Street Journal
“L’Amour is the kind of storyteller who makes the wolves come out of the woods to listen.” People
“[L’Amour] is our professor emeritus of how the West was won.” Morley Safer, in L’Amour’s 60 Minutes profile, 1976
“[L’Amour’s] characterizations, attention to detail, and well-placed surprises make his writing continue to resonate after half a century.” AudioFile
“L’Amour never writes with less than a saddle creak in his sentences and more often with a desert heatwave boiling up from a sunbaked paragraph. A master storyteller…for reading under the stars.” Kirkus Reviews
